Wisdom from a dog....

Run, because you can..

Go for rides and look out the window...

Play, every chance you get.

The words below are from an anonymous author.
I think this is wonderful advice!

Remember, if a dog was the teacher you would learn things like:
When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.
Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure Ecstasy.
Take naps.
Stretch before rising.
Run, romp, and play daily.
Thrive on attention and let people touch you.
Avoid biting when a simple growl will do..
On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass.
On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.
When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
Be loyal.
Never pretend to be something you're not.
If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.
When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by, and nuzzle them gently.

Now go enjoy your day!


  1. i always have thought that when we die one of the first secrets of the universe we will understand is that animals are so much smarter than humans.

  2. You've got the right idea. Romp and play and enjoy life. What pretty little dogs you have. And pretty chickens also. Love your blog and you have a beautiful place.

  3. Good advice! We can learn a lot from our dogs and chickins.

  4. I agree! We could learn a lot from our animals. They ask for little, but, give so much in return - even on the days they can be a pain in the butt!!
    Thanks for the kind words.

  5. We can learn so much from our pets, I agree. I have two cats and they are such a joy. If I'm feeling down or under the weather they seem to sense this and will lovingly and gently sit on my lap, purring gently. They have mastered the art of relaxation and in doing so relax us too.


  6. I miss having cats. I couldn't have one (or two) now because the dogs don't particularly care for them :-(
